“Amazing Experience”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

I was lucky enough to experience a Trial Flight with Garden City Helicopters. As soon as I walked in the door I was warmly welcomed by the crew and briefed on the flight. Full of nerves and a constant smile on my face we took off for a trip of a lifetime. If the excitement of being my first time in a helicopter wasn't enough I even got to take control (under expert supervision of course) and got a true feeling of the skill involved in handling such a powerful machine. This was such an amazing thrill and one that I wont forget!

We recently chartered a helicopter for a staff function and it was a great time had by all. The various flights were for 30 staff and included amazing sights over the chc cbd as well as the volcanic cliffs and harbours of Akaroa and Lyttelton Harbours. A must do!

“Garden City Helicopters - CHCH-----AMAZING!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

WOW......what an amazing trip!!! The Changing Face of CHCH trip gives a whole new perspective on what is left not only in the city but also around Whitewash Heads in Sumner & Taylors Mistake. Even for a local who drives past a lot of this everyday you can't get the same picture as you can aerially. Well worth the money spent & would thoroughly recommend
